Bread Recipe 1 from Mark De Levie

I have achieved my first good loaf of bread (after many trials):

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups organic soy flour
6 tablespoons organic flax seeds, ground to a fine meal
5 tablespoons yeast
1.5 tablespoons organic wheat gluten
Wet ingredients:
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1.5 cups tepid water

Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the oil and water.  Oil a bread pan with virgin olive oil, then spread the mix into the bread pan.  Set in a sunny window or some other warm place to rise.  Once during rising, press down in several places to collapse the larger CO2 bubbles, then return to warm spot for more rising.  Bake in 350F oven for 35-40 minutes.

The resulting loaf has a beautiful dark-brown crust, is light brown inside, has a very nice nutty flavour (you taste the flax more than the soy).  It's quite dense, and holds its shape when sliced as thin as 1/4".  This isn't wonder bread.  I sliced it into 16 slices of about 3/8".
